Applied research aimed at innovating smart packaging made of biodegradable materials. The experimental aimed to identify the type of biomaterial and the proportion needed to develop a material with improved physical and mechanical characteristics, as well as to establish the biopolymers that will be used to obtain the new single-use smart biofilms. After the research activity, an edible material for single-use packaging was obtained: its testing and characterization, benefits in use, applicability were performed. Creating smart biofilms with various additives, phytoncide extracts - in order to present alternatives to the materials for packaging dehydrated and candied food, existing today in the trade with foods. Also, a series of substances with antiseptic properties were extracted from plants containing phytoncides and biomaterials were impregnated to improve their antiseptic characteristics. The final results also aimed at establishing the products that can be packed in newly developed materials, with the possibility of obtaining and immediate application in the specialized industry.
